The Colonial Triangle Unit of The Herb Society of America
The Colonial Triangle of Virginia Unit was formed in 1999 and is active in and around the Colonial Williamsburg area. Unit members volunteer in several gardens in Colonial Williamsburg, including those at the George Wythe House, the James Blair House, and the Apothecary Shop. In addition, the unit maintains a garden at the Hospice House in Williamsburg.
Members of the Colonial Triangle Unit are active educators, presenting public programs on topics such as herb garden maintenance, basic culinary herbs, and herb growing tips for the Williamsburg area.
The unit also offers a variety of workshops and tours for its members. Recent events include tours of local nurseries and herb farms and cooking demonstrations by local chefs. The unit raises money through an annual plant sale and book sale to help support its gardens and the National Herb Garden in Washington, DC.
Unit meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month from September through June. Please contact the co-chair for information on upcoming events.
